You didn’t think that New Balance were going to call it quits after bringing back just one pair of the New Balance 740, did you? Next up for that James Worthy classic is this white and purple pair. The shoe started off as a player exclusive in an era when that concept was just being born – perhaps a couple of old school Lakers fans can recall seeing them on feet during that team’s late 80s dominance. Their return will be supported by Packer Shoes, who will be first up to release the pair this Saturday, August 16th. Take a look at this Lakers flavored James Worthy joint and tell us in the comments if you’ll be picking up these New Balances.

James Worthy Speaks on the Return of His New Balance P740 “Worthy Express”

July 10th, 2014 by | 4 comments

james worthy new balance interview 01 James Worthy Speaks on the Return of His New Balance P740 Worthy Express

There’s no doubt that New Balance is a brand most associated with running sneakers. The Boston based company has been in the footwear business for over a hundred years now, with the majority of their output consisting of models meant for the track, street, or trail. That’s not to say that they don’t have heavy hitters in other categories though. One need look no further than their partnership with Lakers legend James Worthy for evidence of that. In 1985 “Big Game James” became the brand’s first ever signature athlete following a million-dollar deal that marked the brand’s biggest foray into the world of basketball footwear, with the New Balance P740 being the first James Worthy sneaker to release. The partnership landed them plenty of exposure – the UNC alum would go on to win three championships with the Lakers in the 80s and was even named the NBA Finals MVP thanks to an incredible performance in 1988.

Packer Shoes Teases New Balance Worthy 740 Retro

June 19th, 2014 by | 2 comments

new balance 740 worthy 01 Packer Shoes Teases New Balance Worthy 740 Retro

New Balance has definitely backed away from the realm of basketball sneakers in the modern era, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not willing to do some retro referencing of those sneakers. Case in point is the return of the 1985 New Balance Worthy 740, a shoe that had the distinction of being the first ever signature model from NB. Their 2014 return, hinted at here by the team at Packer Shoes, so far seems to be staying reasonably true to the original – they’ve got the “Worthy” call out on the tongue despite the fact that relationships between him and NB got rocky in 1990. Continue reading for a look at an original pair and stay with us for updates on the New Balance Worthy 740 retro.
